Ramamohana Brahmachari was a yoga teacher who lived in a cave in Himalayan mountains near Manasa Sarovar, Tibet along with his wife and three children. He taught more than 3,000 asanas to his pupils including Tirumalai Krishnamacharya of Mysore. He believed propagating yoga would be his guru dakshina. Krishnamacharya, a noted yoga teacher of 20th century claimed that he stayed with Ramamohana Brahmachari for seven years in his cave and learnt various aspects of yoga, including stopping of pulse. Ramamohana Brahmachari also taught therapeutic use of yoga. He taught yoga sutra.
Ramamohana Brahmachari taught yoga to Krishmacharya up to 1918, when the latter left for his native place Mysore and taught yoga to hundreds of people.
